Veterans Needed

Al Brody one of the local Bicycle Advocates is looking for veterans to join the Veteran Powered Vehicles group in the Colorado Springs Veterans Parade on Saturday 09 NOV 2013?

Last year only about a dozen of us showed, it would be fantastic if more showed.

We meet on one of the sides streets a few blocks on Tejon St north of St Vrain St. As the event gets closer I will get the exact street and post it here.

Come dressed in Red, White and Blue or Uniform and Helmet, bike, trik, quad, or scooter (non-motorized). Your family can join us also.

    I was there, but didn't know about Pedal-Powered entry. Just joined the group today. I went out because of Patriot Guard Rider group my brother belonged to. Paying tribute to them for standing at my brother's funeral on Thursday. I don't ride motorized bikes, so was looking for a group that honors our vets that are pedal powered. Maybe we could start a similar group to PGR but human powered bike instead.

    If I ride it will be later. I guess my Boy Scouts are marching in this parade. So I have to play the Dad card.

    I'm going to say "yes" at this point... mostly to reserve a spot. If I wear anything military it will be my team jersey with the US Army on it.

    I'll be there, and will try to talk my wife into coming as well. She is also a veteran and an active duty officer.

    Roughly the area around North Tejon St. and Monument St.

    Here is a Google Maps link:

    Parade starts at 10am, showing up anytime after 9am is good and by 9:30 is appreciated.

    Can't say enough about how fun it is to be a pedal-powered entry into a local parade, especially the Veterans Day Parade. Come on out and join us, a little bit of red/while/blue and we'll have a blast.

    I'm with Robert, I'll be riding my patriotic Surly Moonlander and would love to see as many fat bikes as we can get out rolling together down the middle of Tejon!
